Freshly Made Sketches #200!

*This is my 2nd post today.  Please scroll down to view my MFT guest blogger post!

I'm thrilled to be joining Freshly Made Sketches for their 200th challenge!
Wow, congrats ladies.  That is amazing!!!

Lil' Inker Designs is one of the sponsors and our DT is playing along.


I love how open to interpretation this sketch is!



I had so many ideas about how I should attack this sketch...I could have stamped along the vertical line or used two different patterned papers etc.  What I finally decided to do was to use the Border Builders die set for the top and line the card front with paper from the Ombre Stripes Paper Pad.  Next I die cut a bunch of flowers and leaves from the Awesome Blossoms die set, then stamped them all using the coordinating Awesome Blossoms stamp set.  I stamped the sentiment in black ink, then arranged the flowers to frame it.

I hope I'll see you playing along in the challenge!!  Head on over to Freshly Made Sketches to find out more about the challenge, sponsors and prizes!
